Issue 9 and Volume 108.

Firemen Active in C.D. “Operation Greenwich” Fire defense played the stellar role in the 4-hour “Operation Greenwich” staged by 2,000 C.D. volunteers and municipal forces April 30 last. Witnessed by high-ranking state and national military, civic and C.D. leaders, the exercise simulated a bomb attack on the Connecticut town which “killed” 50, “seriously injured” 500, set many “fires.” Firemen from Bankesville, Round Hill, Glenville and Sound Beach stations, as well as central Greenwich Fire Headquarters fought the simulated “conflagration”. Part of force is shown attempting to stop “fire” in Town Hall Annex. Paid and volunteer firemen were included in the “mass feeding” of 500 “refugees.” Greenwich Fire Chief Stuart Potter directed the fire fighters.
